Myron Floren

Wow, when did you get Myron Floren's autograph??

He was the guest of honor at a Sons of Norway lutefisk dinner, held in the basement of the Nordic Hall, a small building where my dad had his office for as long as I remember. I was probably 10 and very shy about asking—probably someone asked on my behalf.

He was a famous native South Dakotan, as well as a member of the Scandinavian-American Hall of Fame and the International Polka Music Hall of Fame. Lawrence Welk's accordion player for 30 years, the happy Norwegian, & at least one person I know (an accordion player) has actually heard of him.
